Jackie if you are not seeing anything on the display either one of the following is the problem, The receptacle you have the unit plugged into is bad (try a new receptacle) or the breaker is switched off on the breaker panel, Or you were sold a dud unit.
What should happen is when the unit is plugged in the temp display comes on, then if standby is lit you hit the up down arrows on the temp buttons to turn the unit on, you then set the desired temp and wait around 4 hours for the temp to be reached.
